307: Mocha Strips.

It arrives as a sweet smelling, somewhat broken, nicely hydrated, flake.

Igniting Mocha' couldn't be any easier, and from first light the mocha flavouring's the most apparent taste; indeed, there's coffee, but also a bitter tasting chocolate note. This topping somewhat fulminates and pushes the tobacco out of the way. But, what tobacco flavour I do get, tastes like a simple VaBur, to me. The burn can creep above medium in temperature, and also issue my tongue with a bit of a 'nip'; so for these reasons I recommend a more gentle cadence.

Nicotine: just below medium. Room-note: nice.

307: Mocha Strips? I'll award it two stars, it wouldn't make it into my rotation:

Somewhat recommended.

I just received the #307 Mocha Strips, sold under the Sutliff banner and it's actually flake, strips. Its soft flake, easily rubbed out, or folded and stuffed into the bowl of your pipe. Very nice stuff. Slow burning, moderately warm and flavorful . Being an aromatic, it has a little bite (to an old pipe smoker) To me it seems fruity, and maybe a hint of coffee. It smells great too. I don't find it similar to any tobacco I've tried.

Medium Very Strong Full Pleasant

My tobacco was at least 10 years old. This comes in a HIGHLY COMPRESSED FLAKE. It breaks up easily and is somewhat dry. The taste is rasberries and vanilla. There are some very fine tobaccos here. The main players are the Virginia and the Turkish with the Oriental lingering in the background. This is a fairly strong tobacco. The age on this has really increased its potency both in flavor and nicotine. There is a slight bite on the tongue and exhaling through the nose results in a wonderful blast of rasberries and vanilla followed by a rush sensation similar to snuff. Stays lit very easy and burns slow. Room note is fantastic and speaks, "quality". No need to pull hard on this tobacco and is best in a large Billiard, Dublin or Pot. Recommended

This tobacco sells in my neighborhood store as harvest cut. I really like the cut, long strips that beg to be folded and smashed into a large pipe. It has a fairly natural taste the burly gives it a nice nutty flavor, the VA gives it a nice sweet flavor, and the Turkish a smooth and complex delight. I think that the tobacco tends to burn a bit hot and when paired with the over sweet flavor of the "dutch topping" makes this tobacco best for blending.
